2000-2012 Immigrant Stats


I have a researcher looking for immigration stats covering 2000 – 2012. He’s interested in foreign-born arrivals by province. I’ve found a couple of tables in CIC Facts and Figures; components of population growth (CANSIM) that may work; and I know that LFS includes immigrant status. Am I overlooking something more obvious?


If you're looking for yearly immigration stats, I found the following table that may be of potential interest: 
054-0003 < SDDS&tgtOb jType=A RRAY&srcObjId=5057&tgtObjId=540003> - Number of immigrant tax filers, by province of landing, province of residence, sex, landing age group, immigrant admission category, landing year for tax years 1996 to 2011

The Information in this table is derived from the Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB). The Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB), an administrative database combining an administrative landing file with the T1 Family File (T1FF) through exact matching record linkage techniques. The overall linkage rate is approximately 80%. The IMDB consists of immigrants landed between 1980 and 2011 and who filed taxes at least once between 1982 and 2011. The population for this table consists of immigrants who landed between 1996 and 2011 and filed taxes at least once between 1996 and 2011.
